Are we sure it was a "Designing Women" sketch?  I don't think it was, I think they were just southern women.

It was an homage - the line "So you know, and your children will know, that that's the night the lights went out in Georgia" is a famous line from Designing Women

I know Bieber was pale, but he did not look good here. I know he admitted to health problems recently, but who are his hanger ons that said that was a good look? It certainly wasn't. He looked aged and tired, despite being in his 20s.

I think that line has been used in a song, too.  I just don't see this as having anything to do with Designing Women, or I think they would have made it obvious.  Also, they were temps, at an office.  I just don't see it.

eta I can see that line being a nod to the show, but I don't think the ladies were supposed to be from the show.

 They weren't specifically the characters from that show, but they were 100 percent a riff on them.   The clothes, the glasses, the accents (bad as they were), the ongoing rant about a social injustice and of course that line which is arguably the most well known speech Julia Sugarbaker gave...it all was inspired by Designing Women and Dixie Carter/Julia in particular.  This was DW the same way "Secret Word" was Password.

That tattoo on his neck and the pornstache look is so distracting. He looks like he smells, too. 

BWAHAHAHAHAAHAAHAAHAAAHAHAAHAAAA.

 

I agree.

Cecily confirms the Designing Women connection here.

I haven't really been able to find a longer list of cut sketches but did see this:

In other news, the credits mentioned that Jim Downey was one of the writers for Update. Downey has written for SNL off and on from just about the earliest days, headwriting in the mid-90s, going on to write for Update and numerous political sketches; he also made a number of oncamera appearances (he was even a featured player in 79-80). He hasn't been involved with the show for 5-6 years. I thought Update seemed tougher and  funnier this episode - I assume he is one of the reasons why.

Heidi and Ru drunk at a children's party debating if they are nurses? I would love to see that. Sounds bizarre and hilarious.

I agree that the skits where Ru Paul was on his own (for the most part) were the best.  I didn't really care for the Designing women (did Julia Sugerbaker really get all up over a few dollars for wine?), charades (playing for money?  really?  who does that?), thirsty cops (sorry, I just don't find sexual harassment by cops funny) or old new york (it was ok, but the kate/aidy skits get a bit done).

I don't usually like the chad skits, but this one was good.  I loved reading the library skit, hilarious.

I was unexpectedly ok with Beiber.  Not my music, but I appreciate his dance moves.

Another cut for time piece. Probably one of the strangest things I've seen on the show in a good number of years. I can see why it was cut, although I enjoyed the performances and I got some cheap laughs (mainly at "He has your father's penis." "Wait...what?")

When I saw Bieber, I couldn't help but think of this . . .

I thought Bieber looked like Miley Cyrus, if Miley ever had a pornstache. I never thought they looked alike before, so it must have been something in their attitude and general state of being, rather than actual physical features.

Spectacularly unfunny. And what the hell happened to Bieber? He looks like a 40yo bad guy from a 70s cop show.
